For 2018 we have repeated our popular Cross-breed Blend with a real mix of breeds from several cross-breed ewes – Bluefaced Leicester and Cheviot, Lincoln and Cheviot, and Lincoln and Hampshire. The fleeces were all lovely and have blended well together – the resulting yarn picks up slight drape and sheen from the longwool ancestry, softness from the Hampshire genes and a light bounce and lightness from the Cheviot influence. It is a light DK weight and is lovely to knit with. The 2018 version of Cross Breed Blend has a beautiful natural grey shade but is otherwise similar to the 2017 version.
